ACTIVITIES & OUTINGS

This inland cycle trail links Kaikōura and Amberley and takes 3 to 4 days to complete from either direction. The 210km grade 3 route (suitable for intermediate riders) took three years to construct and opened in early 2019, with further funding expected to extend the trail to Christchurch. Cutting inland and running parallel to SH1, cyclists can cruise in peace through the mountains and countryside. Be prepared to stop once or twice (or more) in the Waipara Valley to reward those muscles with a well-deserved glass of pinot noir. Or two. hurunuitrails.org.nz Multi-day bike hires are available in Christchurch at Natural High, 690A Harewood Road. (03) 982 2966, naturalhigh.co.nz
